They also demanded detention of Shahriar Kabir, Nasir Uddin Yusuf Bachchu and Imran H Sarker for being ‘atheists’.
The radical group, backed by the Jamaat-e-Islami, voiced their demands from their Saturday’s rally in Dhaka.
Speakers there threatened to continue with their movement until the ‘atheists’ were tried.
Hifazat leader Mamunul Haq asked Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina to remove Bangladesh Workers Party chief Rashed Khan Menon, Information Minister Hasanul Haque Inu and Planning Minister AK Khandker from the Cabinet. “Otherwise, your ‘boat’ will scuttle,” he warned.
